Laptop Lunch

Bulking Up

October 25, 2010

My lunch, that is. I go through phases where I buy frozen meals for lunch at work. I am currently in the middle of one of them.  I learned a long long time ago, that unless I add extra veggies to those meals, they won’t last me long.  I’ve also learned to not eat out […]

Pimp my lunch

August 20, 2010

Lunch is so much more satisfying when it’s visually appealing. You eat first with your eyes, as they say. I go through periods where I find myself relying on frozen meals more than I’d like. One of the problems I have with them is that they just look so pitifully skimpy once you’ve heated up […]

Well, well, well.  Look who finally showed up! 🙂 I hope you guys are all doing well — I have lots of catching up to do in Blogville! Trying to get back into a routine, for eating, working out, and blogging. It feels good to have a schedule of some sort. I finally admitted to […]

Strong start!

July 12, 2010

I love it when Monday goes well — it seems to set the tone for the week. Breakfast was a no-brainer: It makes things so much easier when I have a go-to to-go breakfast! I made sure lunch was tasty so I wouldn’t be tempted to go out: These are actually lunch and afternoon snack […]

An eggs-ellent start

April 19, 2010

It is so much easier to fall out of a habit than to get into one. A little over a month ago, I was in a good groove with getting up early to exercise, photo-journaling my food, and blogging. I’m hoping I can get back to that soon! 🙂 Before the eats, I have to […]

Bento, deconstructed

March 29, 2010

Thanks again everyone for your supportive words the other day, they were a great comfort to me.  I think I’m in one of those funks and whining about my weight is the easiest thing to dump it on.  It’s a constant struggle and I’m tired of fighting it.  Anyway, I’m sure I’ll talk about it […]

Fun news!

January 18, 2010

I have been so excited to share this news with you guys! As you know, I am a big fan of bento boxes for several reasons — portion control, visual appeal, and less waste, among others. A few months ago, I ordered my very first Laptop Lunch set from Obentec.  I had seen pictures of […]

“Heart’s Desire” Bento

January 13, 2010

The running gag for my birthday is my love for Jacob on Twilight.  Especially since he’s barely 18 and I’m venturing into cougar-ville. You saw the poster I got and how happy I was along side it.  There were other pictures taken, but I am not about to embarrass myself any more. What you didn’t […]

What’s in the package?

December 20, 2009

I’m sure it’s not much of a surprise. See? Yup. MORE bento stuff. I have like 3 big plastic bins of bento boxes but I still feel compelled to buy them. My new obsessions are the Laptop Lunches by Obentec. Anyway, they came out with a newer version of their boxes a few months ago […]

Last-minute lunch

October 25, 2009

I came down for a glass of water and ended up packing a lunch!  Not bad! Excuse the weird lighting — it’s almost 10 and I was taking it in the family room with our old camera. This was all stuff that was ready to go in the fridge.  I packed the last of the […]
